All those colors. The jar. The movement. The gumballs falling out of the jar. This card is a visual ball! High 5, May

Oh boy! Talk about a beauty of a card. From the colors to the design to... well... everything, this is a great card. Well done, Deepti!

Talk about a feast for the eyes! The colors Tara used + all the little paper crafted touches make these jars amazing! Nice work, Tara!

Spooky Supplies to Love

Halloween is Friday.
That means Teri the Candy Lady is ready to play.
She'll be hanging out with her handsome hound, Marley (complete in his Halloween-themed bowtie), giving candy to the masses.
I can't wait!
And I can't wait to scrapbook about the night.
Halloween night is one of my favorite days. It's always fun when my friends stop by, dressed up with their families. I always taking a few pictures to remember the fun day.
So I ask you: Are you going to scrapbook those Halloween memories?
Here are a few fabulous supplies that I think just might find their way onto my Halloween pages this year. Heck, I might even use a few of them to whip up a few last-minute Halloween cards and decorations over the next day or two.

I just love the happy, friendly feel of this collection from Simple Stories. Bright colors + such fun and happy illustrations. Halloween may be spooky, but this collection is anything but scary! 

Words I'd use to describe the Arsenic and Lace collection from Echo Park Paper? Hauntingly delightful.

Oh, for cute! Bright + happy  + fun = the Halloween Magic collection Bella Blvd. I love how light and playful this collection is. It's a lot like what Halloween is to me: FUN!

Yes, it's true. I monster love this stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I mean, seriously, how cute are those little monsters? Yeah. Man. TOTALLY cute.

Speaking of cute, this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! has my heart. That cat! That dog! Love them!

Filling up the treat bowl for the kids (and for me... hee!),

Monday Funday

Happy Monday, Moxie Fabbers!
The ghouls, goblins and ghosts (and a whole lot of cute Trick-or-Treaters) are coming out on Friday. Halloween, my friends, is this week!
And I have got a treat for you today.
I've waved my magic wand and created a spooktacular free downloadable Halloween printable for you.

You like? I hope so.
All you need to do is go to one of these links to download it so you can print it.

Hang in it on a clipboard.
Put in a frame.
Even put it in a window.
Put it anywhere, really, that you think could use a little "Happy Happy Happy Halloween" cheer!

Wishing you a ghoulishly good day,

Fabulous Friday Challenge: Just Something to "Chair"

Friday means it is time for another Fabulous Friday Challenge.
Yep, friends. This is a good one.
Your challenge is to make a paper crafted project inspired by this photo.

(Insert wild clapping here!)
So here's more dirt about this challenge: It's up to you pick exactly how you it inspires you. It could be the colors. It could be all those glorious patterns. It could be... well.. that the photo involves (really, really cool) chairs. It could be something else. Whatever it is, make something (... and have a little fun doing it too)!
Post your completed project on your blog by midnight EST on Wednesday, Nov. 5th.
Then, click on the title of your post, copy the URL at the top and link it using the Mr. Linky below.
Be sure to link back to this post and be sure to include in your post how you were inspired. (Just so we all know how you were inspired.)
By the way, if you don't have a blog, you can post your project to this flickr group and link it to Mr. Linky as soon as you've grabbed the URL.
I'll pick one participant at random to score something fun from the Moxie Fab World prize drawer as thank you for playing along. That lucky person will be announced on Friday, Nov. 7th!
(By the way, who was the winner from the last Fabulous Friday Challenge? That would be Dee Tollaksen. Congrats, Dee! Please drop me an email by Nov. 7th at teriishere AT gmail Dot com. Please include the words MFW Winner in the subject line.)

Planning On This...

Hi, Moxie Fabbers!
Is it just me or does it seem like the new thing in paper crafting and scrapbooking is planners to organize your life?
I mean, it's like planners and supplies to decorate planners with are coming on strong.
Check this out.

There are stamps.

And don't miss this set from Sweet Stamp Shop. It sure looks fun. This one looks fun too. 

There are kits.

And check out Cocoa Daisy. They have a day planner kit program.

And let's not forget all the decorative tapes and stickers out there. They all work so well with planners.

A little decorative tape to color code your events and activities with?

Yep. That's what I am talking about.

This planner thing looks like it's got some legs.
I mean, there's more coming.
Did you see this big announcement from Webster's Pages? They are coming out with the Color Crush collection of planners and planner accessories.  

I must admit that I'm planning on keeping an eye on this planner thing. I wonder if we might see even more planner stuff in the coming months.

So what do you think about all this planner stuff? Do you keep a planner? Does the thought of keeping one make your head spin? Lay it on me. I'd love to hear your thoughts.


Winner. Winner.

Well, you know the rest.
Wednesdays are always a good day to name winners.
The winner of the Moxie Fab World Surprise Prize from this post here is Harriet Skelly (10/17 @ 12:12 p.m.). Congrats, Harriet! Please drop me an email at teriishere AT gmail DOT com by 11/5. Please include MFW Winner in the subject line.
